LCV Victory Fund Statement: Mike Pence, always on the side of polluters not the voters
Washington, D.C.: In response to Mike Pence’s announcement that he is running for president, the LCV Victory Fund issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Campaigns, Pete Maysmith:
“Whether it was in the Indiana Governor’s mansion, Congress, or the White House Mike Pence has stood in the way of environmental protections at every turn. As Governor of Indiana he aided and abetted rolling back an energy efficiency law that would have saved Hoosiers money, fought a state clean energy standard, and took hundreds of thousands in contributions from the oil and gas industry. In Congress he earned a near rock bottom 4% career score on LCV’s Scorecard. As an extremist MAGA Vice President he served in the most anti-environmental administration in American history, overseeing the largest rollback of our public lands, gutting of the EPA, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Pence has proven no matter what office he holds that he’s on the side of big polluters, not the voters. His addition to the Republican presidential field brings just another climate-denying puppet of Big Oil.”
